Beaucarnea recurvata, commonly known as ponytail palm or bottle palm, is a unique and attractive houseplant that is native to Mexico. Despite its common name, it is not actually a palm, but rather a member of the agave family. The plant features a distinctive, bulbous trunk that can grow up to several feet in diameter, with long, narrow leaves that resemble a ponytail. The leaves are typically a deep green color, and can grow up to several feet in length. Ponytail palm is a relatively low maintenance plant, and can be grown both indoors and outdoors in warm climates. It prefers bright, indirect light, and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
